[vcf-midatlantic] Looking for time on working PDP-11 (or other DECs minicomputers)?

Hey all,
I'm curious if anyone knows if there are museums on the east coast (and
ideally close to New Jersey) that have working PDP machines, and may allow
some time working with them. I've been wanting to do a video on some of the
PDP series machines, and especially some of the other operating systems
beside UNIX such as RT-11. I know it's possible to emulate most of these in
SIMH, but I'd prefer to at least be able to show the real hardware in

Ideally, I'm looking for time on a PDP-11, and a PDP-8, but I'd mostly like
to capture these minicomputers running for real, including loading tape,
and more if possible. Figure this was the best place to ask on potential
leads. For those who don't know me, I'm NCommander at YouTube, and I've
been at the last few VCF events.

Hope someone can point me in the right direction,
~ NCommander
